I like the wheels. For off roading steel will bend sooner than break. The opposite of aluminuminum.

It is dirty.

Not just that, it’s the sort of dirty that a truck gets when you clean it then let a bunch of people with grubby hands fondle the hell out of it.

They should make up their minds. Before taking any more photos of it—either take it out in the mud and play a bit, or clear up that mess.

I believe we are in agreement on this ..

Call me crazy, but I think it looks like maybe they're getting photos/video for a Back to the Future parody of some sort. The wheels remind me of those on the DeLorean in the movie, and the markings on the CT could be visual landmarks for post-editing. Of course, I could be up in the night...just what it looks like to my untrained eye.

*edit* Okay, I just looked at some stills from the movie...obviously the wheels on the CT have circular holes, rather than the linear "spokes", but the general aesthetic still seems (to me) reminiscent of the DeLorean wheels.

The Cybertruck spotted @ the Fremont factory on 4/6/23. Those are definitely strange rims. What do you think is going on here with all these wires taped up to it?

Am I the only person here that noticed those AWFUL black fender flairs that stick way down past the rocker panel?

I have no idea what they're trying to do, but they would be awful for off-road use. AND they're UGLY!!!!

I think the effect is amplified due to the camera angle. Havent really seen this in other shots.
